Contribution of the PaperWhat is already known about the topic?Children who are ethnic minorities, from low-income families, and live in urban neighborhoods are at higher risk for obesity, low levels of physical activity, and poor nutritional intake.Primary care clinics provide an ideal setting for the development of obesity management for children.What this paper adds?This study demonstrates that a program that is a culturally sensitive, small group-based with collaboration with community in a primary care setting is feasible and well-received.This study suggests that this type of intervention has short-term efficacy for reducing BMI and BP and improve quality of life in overweight and obese Chinese American children from low-income families.
